The unexpected success of micro bags was something that took many bag lovers, myself included, by surprise. After all, a bag is intended to carry your most needed wares, and when the trend of teeny-tiny bags became more than just a moment but a movement, it seemed like it might not hold. But hold it has (well, not holding all of your items like your much needed phone) and I find myself utterly infatuated with micro bags.
These miniature versions are playful and meant to make a fashion statement, and while our bags are intended to be functional, many of us grow our collections extensively to fill just about any and every category that exists. We want our bags to be different and fun, and if you are anything like me and are just a tad obsessed with all things miniature; then you’ll quickly fall in love with Dior Micro Bags. Dior reinvented some of its most iconic bag silhouttes, including the Dior Saddle Bag, Lady Dior Bag, and the newer Dior Vanity Bag all in micro sized versions.
I welcome you into our world in which these Micro Bags set the stage for entirely different scenes. From a modern day construction site to a very serene picnic to a day at the pool, we created little worlds to suit each of these perfectly tiny Dior bags. And truth be told, I’ve had this idea for so long to create miniature scenes and when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped for joy. The scenes we set are just as fun as the bags themselves, and sometimes, we all need to remember how much joy our bags bring into our lives – it is, after all, why I first fell in love with bags!
Dior Lady Dior Micro Vanity Case
When Dior introduced the Vanity Case as a bag option, I felt this instant longing for it. The shape is more utilitarian, intended to be that of a makeup bag, but once you add the shoulder strap and turn it into a bag, I really like the new shape. This Micro size has a single compartment that you access by the open top double zip closure. The removable and adjustable leather shoulder strap allows for you to carry the bag by hand, wear it over the shoulder, or crossbody. As this bag is a part of the Lady Dior family, a D.I.O.R charm hangs from the outside hardware where the strap attaches. The outside features Cannage topstitching on the lambskin leather and there are ample colorways to choose from.
Dimensions & Price
The dimensions are small of course, 12cm x 7.5cm or 4.7″ x 3″. Price is $1,650 via Dior.com.
Dior Micro Lady Dior
The Lady Dior bag is one of the most iconic and recognizable bags in handbag history, and this fun-loving sizes allows the sometimes more demure Lady Dior bag to feel a bit more lively. The Micro Lady Dior has every feature that makes the Lady Dior the staple that it is, from the iconic cannage motif, to the recognizable architectural lines, to the golden Christian Dior signature. The smaller size is meticulously crafted by the House’s leatherworking Ateliers in Italy and the elements of this tiny accessory are then assembled one by one by the petites mains. Dior offers a variety of colors from basic black to pastel hues and there’s a long, adjustable shoulder strap included as well.
Dimensions & Price
Dimensions are 12 x 10 x 5 cm / 5 x 4 x 2 inches and this would allow for your AirPods Pro, Lipstick, keys, and a bit of cash or credit card or two to fit inside. $3,500 via Dior.com.
Dior Micro Saddle Bag
The return of the Dior Saddle Bag three summers ago would confuse some of you now, you may have thought the bag never left. But this popular shape that was a recognizable fashion statement in the early 2000s wasn’t sold again until summer of 2018. And this shape is here to stay now! The design is emblematic to the House, featuring curves that are a tribute to equestrian codes. The tiny size of the Saddle bag is available in black, compass rose and cloud blue – some of Christian Dior’s favorite colors.
The blue is a dreamy hue, perfect as the water backdrop to our day at the pool. You can pair this bag with micro shoulder straps or opt for one of Dior’s embroidered shoulder straps to really give a different look.
Dimensions & Price
Dimensions are 12 x 7.5 x 5 cm / 4.5 x 3 x 2 inches and like the other micro bags, you can fit AirPods, lipstick, keys, and some cash and credit cards inside. Price is $2,550 via Dior.com.
